Hi Nicolas,

I really wonder what I would do if you were not there to check my
mistakes :(

How dumb I was.  I'll move the life long Autotest files into AT-*, and
keep the others in at-*.  Thanks!

Nicolas> address@hidden [~/temp]> uname -a OSF1 medusa.sis.pasteur.fr
Nicolas> V5.1 732 alpha address@hidden [~]> date "+%s" %s

But the code is not expected to be mandatory.  How exactly does it

How, I see:

at_start_time=`date +%s` 2>/dev/null

should be written

at_start_time=`(date +%s) 2>/dev/null`

right?  I'll do that, gimme just a few minutes.
